A Four Year, Coeducational, 

Liberal Arts College 

The rhetoric's the same. It always is. 
Everycatalog, everyhandbook, U.S.A. 
Same words, same phrases, same pious 

claims, same empty promises. 
Freedom, quality, responsibility, maturity, 

intellectual stimulation, social interaction, 

on and on and on. 
But what's it really like? What is the real 

Who knows? Nobody seems to care. 
But here, maybe things will be different. 
Not for certain, mind you, just maybe. 
But what will make it so? 
Words? No! Symbols? No! Buildings? No! 

Promises? No! 
Apathy? No! 
What then? It's simple. 
The integrity and depth of your response to 

a human life challenged— a precious life. 

Your life. 
A total life. A Ufe with a birth, a death, and 

a destiny. 

A total existence which demands a total 

Yes, response. That's the key word. 
So understand the stakes. 
It is your life, your future, your destiny, so 

take it seriously. 
Joy in intellectual curiosity. 
Be aware of the Transcendent. 
Plumb the depths of the human spirit. 
Develop a proficiency in the exciting art of 

living and learning and serving. 
Dare to be men and women for others. 
Find yourself in a community that cares. 
Seek reinforcement and enUghtenment from 

every situation you encounter, every 

person you touch. 
Elevate the vision of this college and this 

But understand that the responsibility for this 

response rests with you. 
It can come from nowhere else. 
This is as it should be. 
Welcome to Florida Presbyterian College. 

Billy O. Wireman 

Free Men In a Free Society 

The liberal arts are designed to fit a human 
being to live the life of a free man in a free 
society. Such a man is responsible for the use 
he makes of his freedom and also for maintain- 
ing his own freedom and that of others. There- 
fore, he must have an understanding of men and 
of human society. He must be sensitive to the 
creative dimensions of the human spirit on both 
an individual and a social level. He must be 
free of the narrowness of experience and rigidity 
of personality that would blind him to the feel- 
ings and accomplishments of those who are 
different. With a sound appreciation of the ec- 
onomic and technological foundations of society, 
he must be hberated from bondage to them by 
a deep awareness of the spiritual dimension of 
human experience. 

The Community of Learning 

The Florida Presbyterian College community 
is one in which the resources and incentives for 
learning are strong. Each student assumes the 
basic responsibiUty for making the best possible 
use of the resources of the community in his 

effort to learn. Each student has his own hopes 
and dreams and his learning is guided by them, 
and at the same time he is a member of a com- 
munity of inquiring and creative minds, at the 
college and beyond the college. He learns and 
creates within the critical and sympathetic view 
of his fellows, some of whom are more, and 
some less, experienced than he. 

Within the community of learning at Florida 
Presbyterian College both conventional and un- 
conventional methods of inquiry are used. In 
guiding our students' development we afford 
them many opportunities to learn emotional 
independence and to practice individual re- 
sponsibiHty. The college cherishes freedom of 
thought and insists upon respect for human 

Throughout the intellectual and social life 
of the college we find the vital interplay of 
the individual and the community. In the most 
individual learning experience, the one-to-one 
meeting of learner and teacher in conference, 
both are responsive to the standards of the 
community of learning; in the largest lecture 
the seats are filled by individuals each with his 
own background, understanding, and goals. In 

meeting its responsibility to its students, the 
college uses a great range of learning situations, 
materials, and devices. By their initiative and 
dihgence, the students in turn meet their re- 
sponsibility to themselves and to the community 
of which they are part. 

Liberal Arts Curriculum 

The liberal arts curriculum, which includes 
delving deeply into an area of major interest, 
leads directly to a wide variety of opportunities 
for interesting and socially constructive work 
or to further professional and graduate studies. 
Of the members of the eight classes that have 
graduated since the founding of the college, 
nearly half have undertaken some form of grad- 
uate study immediately after graduation. Grad- 
uates of the college are currently studying a 
variety of subjects, including medicine, law, 
and divinity, in graduate schools; others are 
teaching in colleges and secondary schools; 
while others are meeting successfully the chal- 
lenges of the world of business and commerce, 
or serving the community as civil servants or 
social workers. The success of the college is 
measured in large part by the degree to which 
it enables its graduates to find satisfaction in 
their contributions to the betterment of society 
and the quaUty of human life. 

Florida Presbyterian College expects that its 
graduates will realize that an education does 
not end in four years, but ideally continues 
during an entire lifetime. 

Students and Faculty 

Certain kinds of curriculum and methods are 
appropriate only with excellent students and 
the college seeks such students. The college 
has few rigid requirements, but expects pro- 
spective students to have considerable attain- 

ment in academic subjects. In addition to scho- 
larly achievement, students should display 
breadth of interest and excellence of character. 
Students who enter the college should be eager 
to grow intellectually and spiritually, and must 
be ready to accept responsibility for their own 
learning and for constructive participation in a 
community of learning. The faculty are well 
qualified. In addition, they have come to Florida 
Presbyterian because of their belief in the value 
of liberal education and because of their desire 
to work with students. The typical Florida 
Presbyterian College professor has a genuine 
interest in the personal and scholarly growth of 
his students. 

A Christian Community 

Florida Presbyterian College was founded in 
1958 by the t\vo Presbyterian Synods of the state 
of Florida. Its foundation and its maintenance 
are part of the ongoing ministry of the Church 
to the world that Christ came to serve. Its doors 
are open to qualified students of all convictions. 
It is inconsistent with Presbyterian tradition to 
claim perfection either for individuals or for 
communities. Nevertheless, the college believes 
that its Christian heritage is both vital and essen- 
tial. We have a vision of the college as a com- 
munity in constant interaction with the world 
around it which prepares dedicated people to 
go into the world to witness in response to their 
own callings. 


Core Courses 

During each of his four years, the student 
takes a course of study which is also being 
undertaken by all the rest of his classmates. 
This is the interdisciplinary Core course which 
is taught cooperatively by professors of all aca- 
demic disciplines of the college. The aims of 
the course are to promote a community of learn- 
ers, to demonstrate the interrelatedness of know- 
ledge, and to encourage the student to think 
about the important questions of the natvure of 
man, his relation to God, to nature, and to his 
fellow men. 

The 4-1-4 Calendar 

Florida Presbyterian College uses a 4-1-4 
calendar. This is a shorthand way of summar- 
izing the major features of the calendar. There 
are three terms: fall, winter, and spring. During 
fall and spring term most students study four 
subjects, whereas during the middle, or winter 
term, they work intensively on a single subject. 
The fall term begins around Labor Day and 
ends just before Christmas; winter term takes 
up the month of January; and spring term lasts 
from the first of February until Memorial Day. 

Winter Term 

The winter term is a special four-week period 
of independent study for all undergraduates. 
With examinations for the fall term over before 
Christmas, January is free for intensive study. 

Designed to develop the qualities of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the winter term asks him 
to work without the customary routine of class- 
room and lecture hall on a single problem of 
particular interest to him. With guidance he 
chooses and delimits his subject, gathers his 
material, organizes it, and presents it as a paper, 
a short story, a painting, or a piece of laboratory 

During winter term each professor directs the 
activities of fifteen to twenty students. Some 
students are enrolled in projects designed by 
professors and others design their omti and ob- 
tain the sponsorship of a professor. Projects 
must have academic or creative merit and are 
judged by rigorous standards. Throughout the 

four weeks the professor is available for consul- 
tation and guidance. 

The intensive, independent study of winter 
term supplements the extensive work of the 
courses in fall and spring term. In recent years 
a large number of other colleges have followed 
the example of Florida Presbyterian College in 
adopting a winter term. The fact that other 
colleges also ha\>e the program makes it pos- 
sible for our students to spend one of their 
winter terms on the campus of another college, 
while a student of that college comes to Florida 
Presbyterian. This possibility of exchange vastly 
increases the range of projects open to our stu- 
dents. Florida Presbyterian College also co- 
operates with other 4-1-4 colleges in sponsoring 
winter term projects abroad or in major cities in 
the United States. Recently, cooperative projects 
were offered in London, Ireland, Jamaica, Mex- 
ico, New York and Washington. 


Independent Preparation 

By preparing himself to demonstrate profi- 
ciency in an examination, and by independent 
or directed study, a student is able to advance 
his education during times when he is off cam- 
pus, and receive full credit for work done inde- 
pendently. Of course he is also free to prepare 
himself in these ways while he is in residence 
on campus. 

Demonstration of proficiency : Students with 
advanced levels of proficiency in certain areas 
may receive course credit or advanced standing 
by successful performance in an examination. 
Students taking such examinations will be judged 
on the basis of their demonstrated proficiency 
and not on the basis of their formal academic 
experience. In many areas, students can prepare 
for examinations independently and receive rec- 
ognition for their work without attending lec- 
tures and classes. 

Independent study : A student who desires to 
study a topic in which no regular instruction is 
offered may obtain the sponsorship of a pro- 
fessor under whom he will study that topic in- 
dependently. As students reach advanced levels 
in their major subjects and related areas, they 
often develop special interests that can best be 
furthered by planning a course of independent 
study. A student undertaking independent study 
signs a contract which is also signed by his 
sponsoring professor. The contract indicates 
what the subject of study is and what criteria 
will be used in evaluating the success of the 

Directed study : Sometimes students want to 
study a subject in which a course is offered 
but, for any number of reasons, prefer not to 
take the course. In many areas of the curriculum 
such students have the option of taking the 
course by directed study. In directed study the 
student follows a course syllabus and submits 

work for evaluation at periodic intervals. He 
covers much the same ground that is covered 
in a standard course, but works at his own pace 
under the supervision of the professor. It is also 
possible to take some courses by directed study 
that are never offered as regular courses or are 
offered infrequently. A set of directed study 
guides has recently been prepared at the college 
with assistance from a grant from the Ford 

Studies Abroad 

To improve our students' understanding of the 
world community as well as their appreciation 
of their own country, Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege makes available a variety of opportunities 
for study abroad. Since its second year, Florida 
Presbyterian College has organized overseas 
study programs as an important facet of its 
international education program. Winter term 
projects abroad are conducted annually and, 
through exchange with other colleges on similar 
calendars, it is possible for students to enroll in 
programs carried out in any part of the world. 
The college has also organized special Summer 
Institutes in Europe, Hong Kong, India, Japan, 
Yugoslavia and the Near East. 

As a member of the Associated Mid-Florida 
Colleges, Florida Presbyterian invites its stu- 
dents to participate in year abroad programs in 
Neuchatel, Freiburg and Madrid. 

In the fall, 1970, the college began a new 
pilot project in international studies. Operating 
out of the college's London Study Center, stu- 
dents can undertake Core and specially organ- 
ized independent study projects in the British 
Isles and on the continent. Travel, room and 
board, and all regular program expenses are 
provided for in the regular comprehensive 
charges of the college. 


Florida Presbyterian College awards the de- 
grees of Bachelor of Arts to students in History 


and Social Sciences, the Humanities and Modem 
Languages; and Bachelor of Science to students 
in Mathematics and the Natvu-al Sciences. 

Normal Program of Study 

The bachelor's degree is granted upon demon- 
stration of proficiency in the interdisciplinary 
Core program, a major subject and its related 
fields, and reading skills. 

1. The Interdisciplinary Core Program: 
One course during each semester of residence 
is devoted to this interdisciplinary program 
which functions as an integrating force for the 
individual and for the campus as a community 
of scholars. Each student moves from close ex- 
amination of specified materials into elected 
studies of cultiures and issues. 

2. A Major Subject and its Related Fields: 
Each student must complete study in a major 
field. Major requirements are specified in terms 
of courses or proficiencies. In his Senior year 
each student must either prepare a Senior thesis 
or take a comprehensive examination depending 
upon the desires of the student and the consent 
of the faculty in the major discipline. 

The college offers majors in the following areas: 
Humanities: Art, Literature, Music, Philoso- 
phy, Rehgion. 

History and Social Sciences: Economics, His- 
tory, Political Science, Management, Psycho- 
logy, Social Psychology, Sociology and An- 

Modern Languages: French, German, Spanish 
and Russian. 

Mathematics and the Natural Sciences: Bi- 
ology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics; 
East Asian Studies. 

Students may also pursue a divisional or in- 
terdivisional major consisting of ten or more 
courses of which six will represent concentra- 


tion in one discipline with the additional courses 
related to this area of concentration. 

3. Reading Skills : A reading laboratory is 
available to help all students improve their 
reading speed and comprehension. AH students 
must demonstrate an abihty to read at a rate of 
at least 425 words per minute v^dth a compre- 
hension of 70%. 

Ordinarily a student must complete foiu" years 
in residence and successfully complete 32 
courses and four winter term programs. A 4-1-4 
program is the normal minimal academic load 
for all students. Students desiring to transfer 
into Florida Presbyterian College may be cre- 
dited with as much as two years of college 
work undertaken elsewhere. In order to gradu- 
ate from Florida Presbyterian College a stu- 
dent must spend at least two years, including 
his Senior year, at the college. 

Considerable freedom in the manner of ful- 
filling these requirements is possible. Any stu- 
dent, with approval of his faculty adviser, may 
petition the Academic Affairs Committee to 
substitute other experiences for one or more of 
the 32 courses and foiu* winter term programs. 
It is possible and often desirable for students to 
obtain experience in ways other than passing 

Foreign Language Study 

The college formerly required all students to 
show proficiency in a foreign language equal to 
that normally attained at the end of three years 
of college study. In 1970, however, the College 
Assembly abolished the language requirement 
to allow the student greater flexibility in de- 
signing a college program. The college continues 
to place great value upon foreign language 
study. Most students entering Florida Presby- 
terian CoUege do continue the study of lan- 
guage and we strongly recommend that apph- 
cants to the college take at least four years of 
a foreign language in secondary school. 

Teacher Education 

When instituted, Florida Presbyterian's inno- 
vative plan of professional training for secondary 
school teachers was unique. It has since become 
a model for other institutions to follow. Educa- 
tion courses as such have been eliminated. In- 
stead, the emphasis is upon gaining teaching 
competence through direct involvement in the 
teaching process under personalized supervision. 
The program has been approved by the State 
of Florida Department of Education, and full 
certification for graduates is immediately avail- 
able in the majority of states - those that have 
adopted the new approved program approach 
to teacher education. 

Application to the Teacher Education pro- 
gram is initiated by the student, preferably dur- 
ing the Sophomore year. Procedures include 
personality and vocational interest testing, let- 
ters of reference, and a personal interview with 
members of the Teacher Advisory Committee. 
.Successful candidates engage in appropriate 
non-credit teaching responsibilities for two se- 
mesters on campus, or in the St. Petersburg com- 
munity and in the public schools. During the 
second term of the Senior year they participate 
in an intensive five-week block of structured 
activities that equip them with the necessary 
skills and practical knowledge for the subse- 
quent ten weeks of student teaching in Pinellas 
County schools. Core 402 is the only academic 
course that can be taken during this final 


Jefferson House Program 

Each year, a limited number of students are 
accepted in the Jefferson House Program. In 
this program, students are exempted from the 
formal graduation requirements and allowed to 
design a four-year course of study for them- 
selves. The course of study is designed coop- 
eratively by the student and one or more of the 
Senior Fellows of Jefferson House. It is expected 
to be a course of liberal studies that will meet 
the particular needs, talents and interests of 
the student. Jefferson House seeks, as Junior 
Fellows, students who have a clear sense of 
direction and who have demonstrated self-dis- 
cipline in seeking objectives. 

Summer School 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a six-week 
summer program which includes courses in 
several disciplines including mathematics, lit- 
erature, and foreign languages. The summer 
language program provides an opportunity for 
intensive work in understanding, speaking, read- 
ing and writing. Native informants, language 
tables and practice in conversation are features 
of the program. Programs are offered in German, 
French, Spanish, and elementary Russian. 

In many disciplines there is opportunity for 
independent and directed study during the sum- 
mer. Summer school is open to all qualified 
undergraduates and many courses are open to 
capable high school juniors and seniors. The 
complete recreational facilities of the college 
are open to summer school students. The 1972 
summer session begins June 19 and continues 
through July 28. 


Scholarly and creative activity contain their 
own rewards. In order to help focus the atten- 
tion of the student on these activities and away 
from competition for grade point averages, the 
faculty of Florida Presbyterian College have 
adopted a simple system of evaluation. In evalu- 
ating students' work, we use the grades of HP- 
High Pass, P-Pass, and F-Fail. 

In addition to providing an overall grade, pro- 
fessors report their analyses of the particular 
strengths and weaknesses of the students. 

The Community 

Pinellas County is a peninsula, with offshore 
islands, bounded on the west by the Gulf of 
Mexico and on the east and south by Tampa 
Bay. The city of St. Petersburg occupies the 

southern end of the peninsula and the Florida 
Presbyterian College campus is located near 
the southern tip of the city of St. Petersburg. 
Although the vicinity of the campus is sparsely 
populated, the campus is within the city limits 
of St. Petersburg. The city is readily accessible 
by road, via Interstates 75 and 4 and also via 
Route US 19, which passes just in front of the 
campus. Tampa International Airport, served 
by "Several major airlines, is a forty-five minute 
drive from the campus. Charter flights can land 
at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport and 
small planes can use the Albert Whitted Airport 
in downtown St. Petersburg. There is also rail 
service into the city. The population of St. 
Petersburg is 226,500 and the total population 
of the Tampa Bay area, known as the Suncoast, 
is 967,900. 

For many years the warm sun, clean air and 
pleasant beaches of the area have attracted 
winter visitors to St. Petersburg. In recent years 
the attractions of the city have become more 
diversified as civic minded local citizens have 
built the Museum of Fine Arts and formed an 
opera association and a symphony orchestra. 
The city has recently built the beautiful Bay- 
front Center with two large auditoriums which 
accommodate a variety of cultural and sporting 
events, from ballet to ice hockey. The Ringling 
Museum, an excellent collection of art treasures 
collected by the Ringling Brothers; the Asolo 
Theatre, the repertory theatre of the State of 
Florida; and the Circus Museum are located in 
Sarasota, a half-hour away, across the Sunshine 
Skyway which spans Tampa Bay. 

For many years one of the local newspapers 
has had a standing offer to give away the paper 
any day that the sun does not shine. This offer 
has spread the fame of the St. Petersburg cli- 
mate, which is an excellent one for work and 
study, as well as for relaxation.

Florida Presbyterian is a residential college. 
Most of its students live on the breeze-swept 
bayfront campus in air-conditioned buildings. 

The library at present contains more than 
93,000 volumes and is increased each year to 
ward a goal of 100,000 volumes. Campus facili- 
ties include two teaching auditoriums, one 
equipped for science demonstrations; a language 
laboratory for classroom work or independent 
study; science classroom laboratories and indi- 
vidual laboratories. The theatre for performing 
arts was completed in the spring of 1969. A well- 
equipped music center includes individual stu- 
dios, choral and instrumental rooms. Athletic 
facihties include an AAU swimming pool, soccer 
field, tennis courts, sailboats, canoes and practice 
golf links. A physical education building and 
gymnasium was completed in April, 1970. 

Religious Life 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to create 
an atmosphere enabling the Christian faith to 
be the cornerstone and the central focus of the 
total academic community. To accomplish this 
purpose the college has created a religious 
fellowship called KOINONIA. 

The purpose of KOINONIA is to seek to 
make religious faith relevant to the total col- 
lege community. To accomplish this purpose 
KOINONIA emphasizes : 

1. a consistent, prayerful and creative search 
to understand the meaning of faith in God; 

2. the fellowship of the college community 
joined together in worship and in work; 

3. the involvement of God's people in the 
world for the world through acts of love 
and reconciliation. 


Religious activities are open to all, "seek- 
ers" and "believers" alike, regardless of church 
affiliation or lack of it. The program seeks to 
involve students at every level of interest, com- 
mitment and maturity. 

All aspects of the college's religious program 
are voluntary. The chaplain, individual faculty 
members, students and choir participate in wor- 
ship services conducted for the entire college 

By planning and conducting services, students 
and faculty have the opportunity for a better 
understanding of the meaning of worship. Con- 
sideration of campus, community, national and 
international problems from the standpoint of 
Christian faith provides an approach to religious 
relevance. Students also have an opportunity to 
take part in regional and national conferences 
and ecumenical projects. 

Florida Presbyterian College seeks to guide 
the student toward an intelligent and responsible 
religious commitment in all areas of life. 

The Student Association 

The Student Association carries the responsi- 
bility of student government at Florida Presby- 
terian College. The major policy making bodies 
of the Student Association are the Legislative 
Council, composed of all the presidents of the 
residence houses, and the Executive Council, 
composed of the five elected officers of the 
Student Association. AU students belong to the 
Association and the activities of the Association 
are financed by an activities fee paid by each 
student at the beginning of every school year 
as part of the comprehensive charges. 

Through its Operations Board, the Student 
Association conducts campus social activities, 
including weekend darrces and movies. The 
Student Association is actively involved in the 
ongoing re-examination of the social and aca- 
demic life of the college, as well as in commun- 
ity service and public relations. The Association 
seeks the widest possible student participation 
in its programs. 

The College Assembly 

The College Assembly is a legislative body 
which acts upon matters that significantly affect 
the life of students and faculty members in the 
college community. The College Assembly has 
authority in matters of curriculum design and 
the regulation of social life, subject to the ap- 
proval of the Board of Trustees in matters in- 
volving major policy change. The Assembly 
consists of all members of the faculty, 35 elected 
student members, and six administrative mem- 
bers. The student members are the officers of 
the Student Association, elected by the entire 
student body, and the presidents of the resi- 
dence houses, each elected by his own house. 

Judicial System 

Infractions of campus policies and actions 
which are deemed seriously detrimental to the 
welfare of the college community are reviewed 
by the Student Advisory Council. Minor in- 
fractions are reviewed by House Councils. The 
function of the Councils is to confront the ac- 
cused, determine the facts, and, if the facts are 
as alleged, impress upon him the need to accept 
responsibility for his behavior. Cases in which 
the Councils deem it appropriate to give serious 
penalties are referred to a Hearing Committee 
consisting of faculty, students, and adminis- 


Black Students 

In the fall of 1970, there were 28 black stu- 
dents enrolled in the college. In the spring of 
1970, the college reaffirmed its commitment to 
a meaningful and relevant education for black 
students. The college has added a black coun- 
selor to the admissions staff and has initiated an 
intensive effort to recruit more black students 
in the conviction that this would enhance the 
learning environment for both black and white 
students. In the fall of 1968, the black students 
organized the Afro-American Society, which 
brings to the attention of the campus community 
the problems and concerns of black students, 
carries on work in the black community of St. 
Petersburg, and sponsors the visit to campus of 
black speakers. 


Student publications at Florida Presbyterian 
College are in a constant state of renewal. Dur- 
ing the 1969-70 academic year the students 
switched from three formal publications (a 
weekly newspaper, a literary magazine published 
twice a year, and an annual yearbook) to a 
magazine format publication. Publication of the 
magazine began during the spring semester of 
1970, during which time two publications were 
expected. The students also publish twice weekly 
a news bulletin titled SUN COMPANY. The 
student body also controls and runs the campus- 
limited radio station, WFPC, which broadcasts 
music and news daily on a closed hook-up sys- 
tem to the residence houses. 

The editor of the magazine and the manager 
of the radio station are elected by the student 
body during the spring semester. 

Also, each year a Student Handbook is pub- 
lished by the college as an informative pubh- 
cation for new students at the college. This 
publication is edited by students in connection 
with the Dean of Students' office. 

Sports For All 

The intercollegiate athletic program provides 
valuable experience to those students who pos- 
sess superior physical skills and desire to repre- 
sent the institution in formal competition. The 
sports included in the program are basketball, 
golf, tennis, judo, fencing, baseball, swimming, 
cross-country, sailing and soccer. Florida Pres- 
byterian College is a member of the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards Din- 
ner and the Spring Sports Day are a few of the 
highlights of the sports program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under the 
control of the college and organized and ad- 
ministered by the Athletic Department. The 
Faculty Athletic Committee supervises all sched- 
ules. It also gives attention to the proper re- 
lation of athletic activities to the academic ideals 
and objectives of the college. 

The college sponsors an extensive intramural- 
extramural program in 17 different team and 
individual sports for both men and women. 
Nearly 70 per cent of the student body takes 
part in this program. 



The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the 
year: major productions presented with full 
staging and under professional discipline; in- 
formal experiments, readings and exercises co- 
ordinated with the Core program and other pro- 
jects. Emphasis is placed upon the contemporary 
development of the theatre and upon its engage- 
ment with active intellectual, pohtical, social 
and religious issues. 

The Bininger Center for the Performing Arts 
provides an unusual laboratory for the theatre 

program. It includes an auditorium with flexible 
stage and lighting system, a rehearsal studio, 
a shop for the construction of scenery, a co- 
ordinated center with dressing rooms, costume 
shop, offices, and a conference room. 

Artist Series 

The College Artist Series for 1971-72 will 
feature an in-residence period by most of the 
artists, so that students may have the advantage 
of lectures, demonstrations, and some master 
classes in addition to the formal concert. All of 
the concerts this season will be held on the 


Lectures and Films 

The Core program, the academic societies 
and various associations and clubs bring guest 
speakers and films throughout the year. Gen- 
erally speaking, these programs are open to 
the college community. Among the societies 
that bring special programs to the campus are 
the Social Science Forum, the Chemistry, Bi- 
ology and Physics Clubs, Pi Mu Epsilon, honor- 
ary mathematical society, and three honorary 
language societies. Delta Phi Alpha (German), 
Sigma Delta Pi (Spanish) and Eta Sigma Phi 
(Classics). Several groups, including the Stu- 
dent Association, offer film series. 

The college's Free Institutions Forum brings 
to the campus each year several nationally re- 
cognized experts in various areas of American 
life. Each of them visits the campus for several 
days, giving two lectures, one of which is open 
to the public, and participating in informal dis- 
cussion groups with faculty and students. The 
1970-71 series included James Reston, Walter 
Heller, Kenneth Keniston, and John Kenneth 

Community Internship Program 

The college develops opportunities for stu- 
dents to work in off-campus community service 
projects under the guidance of a faculty member 
or of the Student Association. These activities 
fall into four general areas: research; tutoring; 
paraprofessional training; and planning, strategy 
and action for community development. Many 
such opportunities are available on a purely 
voluntary basis, while others are presented in 
the context of courses, in independent study 
courses, or in group independent study projects. 
Internships lasting a summer or a semester are 
also carried out on a limited basis. Course work 
for credit involving off-campus community ser- 
vice is expected to have both theoretical and 
practical components. 

Student Personnel Services 

Student personnel services are furnished by 
the Dean of Students' office, the Counseling 
Center, the College Union and the Health Cen- 
ter. These services, which are coordinated by 
the Deputy Vice President for Student Affairs, 
are designed to assist members of the college 
community in psychological growth. The em- 
phasis is on the individual, his identity search 
and development, and his place of importance 
and meaning in the community. Many activities 
are designed to aid in bringing students, faculty 
and administrators into meaningful dialogue and 
relationships with each other. 

The Dean of Students' staff is comprised of 
the Dean of Men, two female Resident Coun- 
selors and one male Resident Counselor. The 
Resident Counselors have Master's degrees in 
counseling and live in the residence complexes. 
The Resident Counselors work very closely with 
the Resident Adviser program. Resident Advisers 
are carefully selected upperclassmen who are 
actually in charge of the individual residence 
houses. Part of the Resident Adviser's responsi- 
bility is to assist in creating a healthy climate 
for living in these residences. Another important 
person in the house is the Freshman Adviser 
who assists new students in the social and liv- 
ing transition to the campus. 

The Counseling Center is responsible for the 
orientation program and faculty adviser assign- 
ments. Services rendered by the Counseling 
Center are confidential personal counseling, 
academic and vocational guidance, encounter 
experiences, pre-marital counseling, information 
about part-time and summer employment, career 
advising, and drug and sex education. 

The College Union provides opportunities 
for informal recreation and, in cooperation with 
the Student Operations Board, carries on an ex- 
tensive program of concerts, dances, entertain- 
ments and other social activities. 


Students have access to the college physician 
at daily scheduled clinics. Registered nurses are 
present at the Health Center on a twenty-four 
hour basis to assist the student in health needs. 
In addition to the out-patient clinic, a fourteen 
bed in-patient service is part of the Health 
Center. Cases requiring more extensive care 
than is available at the Health Center are ad- 
mitted to Bayfront Medical Center (550 beds) 
in St. Petersburg. 

Individual Responsibility 

To live in a community is to balance the de- 
mands of unity with those of individuality. While 
our educational goal is the fulfillment of each 
individual's potentialities, community life de- 
mands certain sacrifices from each person to in- 
sure over-all survival and equality of living. 
When a person joins the Florida Presbyterian 
College community, he implicitly agrees to abide 
by common agreements, whether or not he con- 
curs fully with them, as long as the agreements 
are in effect. 

A further, and perhaps more difficult, de- 
mand is that each member of the community 
be concerned with the behavior and develop- 
ment of others as well as himself. Each member 
must try to see that other members live up to 
common standards and agreements. And in turn, 
each should be considerate of needs and living 
patterns of other members. 

The student personnel staff at Florida Presby- 
terian College recognizes that a major aspect 
of education will result from the use of the 
student's own judgment in decision making 
and the assuming of responsibility for such de- 
cisions. As an institution, Florida Presbyterian 
College makes no attempts to be a parental sub- 
stitute. Men and women at Florida Presbyterian 
College are expected, therefore, to make their 
own judgments and to assume responsibility 
for their decisions. 

The student personnel staff, through all of its 
services, attempts to relate to the student on a 


basis of human concern. In some instances, stu- 
dents need to gain more positive and construc- 
tive understanding in personal living and in 
living in a community of fellow beings. To this 
end, services are provided for students having 
difficulty with meeting these standards of com- 
munity living. The student personnel staff seeks 
to respond to students having difficulty, to assist 
them in exploring all alternatives available and 
to challenge them to reach resolutions suitable 
for individuals and the community. 



A resident student may keep an automobile 
on the campus. The privilege of keeping an 
automobile on campus may be withdrawn by 
the Academic Review Committee or the Student 
Advisory Council for students who are in aca- 
demic or social difficulty. 

Students who keep an automobile on campus 
must pay an annual parking fee of $5. 

Housing Regulations 

Learning occurs in many kinds of situations, 
not the least of which is life with friends in 
the residence house. We believe that there is no 
better way to learn tolerance, leadership and 
understanding than by practice in decision mak- 
ing. Consequently, in Une with these goals and 
aims of the college, life in the residence houses 
is oriented toward self government. All men and 
women set their own individual curfew hours. 
Students are encouraged to register their desti- 
nation when leaving the campus for overnight 
or any lengthy stay. 

In keeping with the autonomy of residence 
houses, each house (composed of 34 students) 
is free to make its own decision regarding being 
open or closed to visitors of the opposite sex 
within the hours of noon to midnight on week 
days, and noon to 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Sat- 
urday. A three-fourths vote by members of the 
house is required to establish Open House hours. 
Students not wishing to participate in visitation 
may keep their room doors closed. 

There are seven housing units on campus 
referred to as complexes. Each complex consists 
of four houses. Each house has a Resident Ad- 
viser (senior student) who is in charge of the 
house. Three Resident Counselors live on cam- 
pus in apartments. These are mature staff mem- 
bers with graduate degrees in counseling. Typi- 
cally, there are two men's houses and two 
women's houses in each complex. Each house 
is occupied by men only or by women only. 

Roommate assignments for new students are 
made without consideration of race, color, or 
creed. Residence houses are open for occupancy 
only while college is in session, and must be 
vacated dvuing Christmas recess, spring recess, 
and after graduation. Times for the opening 
and closing of residence houses are given in the 
Calendar of Events. 

Alcoholic Beverages 

Florida law prohibits the sale of alcohol to 
persons under 21 years of age. No one is al- 
lowed to possess or use alcoholic beverages at 
any college function. A student 21 years of age 
may drink in his room, provided he maintains 
a high standard of conduct and decorum. 


Possession of, trafficking in, or use of illegal 
drugs is grounds for dismissal. The use of non- 
prescribed medicines, glue or hallucinogens may 
be dealt with similarly. The college will also 
attempt to encourage a re-education of the stu- 
dent regarding drug usage. 



Admission to Florida Presbyterian College is 
based upon past academic performance in 
mathematics, science, literature, language and 
social studies, achievement on examinations, 
and personal qualifications such as character, 
special talents, range of interest, maturity and 
personal development. The abiUty which the 
student has to profit from and contribute to 
the learning community is emphasized. Anyone 
deemed undesirable because of his conduct 
and character may be refused admission or, as 
a student, may be requested to withdravi^ from 
the college at any time. 

Your Application 

1. Request application forms early in your 
Senior year from the Director of Admissions. 

2. Complete and return your application to 
the Director of Admissions, with a non-refund- 
able application fee of $15, at least two months 
prior to the beginning of the desired entrance 
date. Students who are financially unable to pay 
the $15 application fee will have the fee waived 
upon request. Request the guidance department 
of the secondary school from which you will be 
graduated to send an academic transcript and 
personal recommendation to: Director of Ad- 
missions, Florida Presbyterian College, St. Pet- 
ersburg, Florida 33733. 

3. Arrange to take the Scholastic Aptitude 
Test offered by the College Entrance Examin- 
ation Board. The results of the tests must be 
submitted to the Director of Admissions of the 
college. Scholastic Aptitude Test scores from a 
testing in the Junior year may be used to ad- 
mit students before the November or December 
test results are processed. Florida Presbyterian 
College recommends, but does not require, 
that you take the Mathematics I or II and 
English Achievement Tests. 

Testing centers throughout the country give 


Notification of Acceptance 

The Admissions Office of Florida Presby- 
terian College will prepare a file on each candi- 
date for admission. This compilation will in- 
clude the original request for an application, 
transcripts from the high school or preparatory 
school, test scores, personal recommendations 
from the secondary school, student's statement 
of activities and any other pertinent data. 

The Admissions Committee of Florida Presby- 
terian College meets at regular intervals during 
the school year. The first of the regular meet- 
ings takes place in October, and if you have 
completed your formal application, including 
a high school transcript which is complete 
through the Junior year and Scholastic Apti- 
tude Test scores, it is possible for the Committee 
to act upon your application at that time. Ac- 
ceptance by the Committee at this time does 
not mean that you are obligated to attend 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

When an application for admission is sub- 
mitted to the Admissions Committee and action 
has been taken, the Director of Admissions will 

the Scholastic Aptitude Test at specified times. 
At least six weeks before the date of any of the 
tests, you should apply directly to the College 
Entrance Examination Board, Box 592, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. The Board sends an information 
booklet giving full details about testing centers 
and the tests available, and will mail the test re- 
sults directly to the colleges you designate. 

To be admitted to the Freshman class, you 
should have demonstrated academic competence 
in a high school or preparatory school accredited 
by a state or regional accrediting agency. Even 
though your academic record will not be judged 
primarily on specific units of work, you are ex- 
pected to have, generally: four years of English, 
three years of mathematics, two years of lan- 
guage, one year of history and two years of 


notify you of the status of your application. 
Your application may be accepted pending suc- 
cessful completion of the Senior year; admission 
to Florida Presbyterian College may be denied; 
successful completion of summer school at the 
college may be required; or additional infor- 
mation may be requested to help the Admis- 
sions Committee make a final decision. If you 
are for any reason in doubt about the status 
of your appHcation, write directly to the Di- 
rector of Admissions. 

A visit to the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus is highly recommended. Please tele- 
phone or write to the Admissions Office for an 
appointment at least two weeks prior to the 
time of the intended visit. Only those students 
accepted by the college may be guests of the 
college for weekend visits. 

A medical examination form will be sent to 
each candidate who has paid the $50 accept- 
ance fee. This form should be completed and 
returned to the Director of Admissions before 
the due date which is listed at the top of the 
form. No student will be allowed to register 
until this form is completed and on file. 


All new students, Freshmen and transfers, will 
be asked to come to the campus for orientation. 
The orientation period offers an opportunity 
for meeting with college staff, pre-registration, 
course counseling and placement testing. Infor- 
mation about the orientation will be mailed 
July 1 to all applicants who have paid the $50 
acceptance fee. 

Advanced Placement Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presbyter- 
ian College on the basis of scores on the Ad- 
vanced Placement Examination administered by 
the College Entrance Examination Board. Scores 
of four and five will automatically certify the 
student in the course covered by the examin- 
ation. Scores of three will be recorded on the 

student's permanent transcript and will be re- 
ferred to the staff of the appropriate discipline 
for recommendations concerning possible credit. 

Transfer Admission 

If you are a student at another college or uni- 
versity, and wish to transfer to Florida Presby- 
terian College, you must complete the require- 
ments for admission already listed, and submit 
a transcript of yoiu- college record with a cata- 
logue from all colleges attended. A personal 
statement explaining reasons for wishing to 
transfer is also required. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may submit 
these scores or arrange to retake this examina- 
tion. If you have not taken the Scholastic Apti- 
tude Test, you must arrange to do so. All appli- 
cants must submit results of the Scholastic Ap- 
titude Test to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

The transfer of credit from other institutions 
of higher education approved by the regional 
accrediting agency depends upon the corre- 
spondence of the courses to those offered at 
Florida Presbyterian College and the approval 
of the academic division concerned. Grades be- 
low C are not acceptable for transfer. Students 
wishing to transfer for spring term must have 
initiated the application before January 1. 

Candidate's Reply 

All candidates (including financial aid appli- 
cants) will depost $50 with the Director of 
Admissions by May 1, if admitted prior to that 
date. Applicants admitted after May 1 will be 
expected to make this deposit within two weeks 
after acceptance. This money, though not re- 
fundable, is applied toward the comprehensive 
charges upon enrollment. 

Early Admissions 

Florida Presbyterian College, emphasizing 


individual education, will admit into the Fresh- 
man class certain highly selected students who 
have demonstrated scholastic aptitude, academic 
preparation, social maturity, and strong moti- 
vation, but who have not graduated from sec- 
ondary school. 

The criteria for determining early admissions 
are: 1) completion of the eleventh grade of 
secondary school; 2) strong and highly com- 
mendable college preparatory secondary school 
program; 3) the Scholastic Aptitude Test scores 
on both the verbal and quantitative portions of 
the examination above 600; 4) approval from 
the secondary school principal if the student 
had previously planned to be graduated from 
the school; and 5) a personal interview with a 
member of the Admissions staff, usually at the 

Each case will be given careful consideration 
by the Admissions Committee. 


A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things 
of value, is costly. Only ignorance is more ex- 
pensive. Private, non-tax-supported institutions 
such as Florida Presbyterian College make every 
effort to keep the cost of education down and as 
a result, the student pays only a portion of the 
actual expense of his education. The portions 
paid by the student are as follows: 

Annual Expenses 

Resident Student 

Comprehensive charges — $3,390 (double 

Comprehensive charges — $3,490 (single 
room - available to upperclassmen only) 
Non-Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges — $2,345. 

These charges include cost of room and 
board, post office box, library, athletic activities, 
health program, laboratory operations, studio 
facilities, accident and health insurance, guid- 
ance program, and state food sales tax. All 
rooms are air-conditioned during the months of 
September, October, November, March, April, 
and May. The college assumes no liability for 
utility breakdown over which it has no control. 
All students living on campus are required to 
deposit $15 for room breakage and $5 for key. 

An assessment has been voted by the students 
to underwrite student sponsored programs, pub- 
lications, and similar student functions. The 
Student Association has authorized the Comp- 
troller's Office to collect this assessment which 
is in addition to the annual expenses. This assess- 
ment is required of all students and is non-re- 
fundable upon payment. 

Extra Fees 

All new students are charged an orientation 
fee of $12. Students with automobiles must pay 
a $5 annual parking fee. Private instruction in 
music is $240 per year for one hour a week and 
$120 per year for one-half hour. 

All accounts are due and payable on a term 
basis September 6 and January 31. All unpaid 
accounts from a prior term must be paid be- 
fore students will be permitted to register for 
the current term. All accounts must be paid be- 
fore students will be permitted to take final 
examinations, obtain a transfer of credits, or 
be graduated. Specific financial information may 
be obtained by writing the Comptroller. The 


booklet, Financial Guidance for Students, cov- 
ers in detail the financial requirements and ob- 
ligations of students enrolled in Florida Presby- 
terian College. Guides and rules for payments 
are contained therein. 

In order to meet changing economic condi- 
tions, the Board of Trustees reserves the right 
to revise charges as conditions may warrant; 
the current year's charges will not be adjusted 
during the academic year. 

Financing Your Education 

The payment due September 6 includes the 
comprehensive cost for the fall semester and 
winter term, minus acceptance fees, plus Student 
Association fee, room damage deposit, and key 
deposit. The spring semester comprehensive 
cost is due on January 31. The college cooper- 
ates with insurance and tuition plan companies 
to make monthly installment payments possible 
when this method of payment of comprehensive 
costs more nearly fits the family's budget than 
lump sum payments. 

Early Payment on Account 

If a parent owes at least $2,000 and the total 
amount is paid by July 31, a $30 credit will be 
applied to the student account. 

Aid to Students 

Financial aid is made available to students 
by the Financial Aid Committee based upon 
financial need, academic performance and po- 

Financial need is determined by an evalua- 
tion of the Parents' Confidential Statement by 
the College Scholarship Service, Princeton, 
New Jersey. A student's financial aid is gener- 
ally provided in a package form comprised of 
scholarship or grant, work aid and loan. Stu- 
dents applying for financial aid are automatic- 
ally considered for any of these various forms of 

The college's financial aid program empha- 
sizes the self-help concept. The majority of 
students receiving financial aid will be partici- 
pating in the work scholarship program or one 
of the college loan programs. 

Student loans are good business: a college 
education considerably increases earning power, 
whereas most loans require little or no interest. 
In some instances, loans may be repaid partly 
in service instead of cash. The college has en- 
dowed loan funds, federal-guaranteed loan ap- 
plications and also participates in the National 
Defense Student Loan Program. 

To provide students with the opportunity to 
earn some of their college expenses, Florida 
Presbyterian has created many part-time jobs 
on campus. These jobs range from work in the 
cafeteria, buildings or grounds, to faculty and 
staff offices. It is recommended that Freshmen 
not undertake part-time employment off cam- 
pus. To complete the work scholarship program, 
outstanding upperclassmen are employed as stu- 
dent instructors, assisting professors in teaching 
and research responsibilities. 

Florida Presbyterian College operates with 
the policy that every qualified student should 
be helped to work out financial problems. Re- 
quests for further information regarding finan- 
cial aid should be directed to the Director of 
Financial Aid.

Heartbeat of a College 

In no other area is so much painstaking care 
and concern evidenced at Florida Presbyterian 
College as in the selection of its faculty— the 
heartbeat of any such institution. The faculty 
members who are chosen combine scholarship, 
strong teaching ability and concern for students. 

The criteria for acceptance, as set forth by 
the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher who 
has depth and command in his field of special- 
ization and a breadth of cultural background 
enabhng him to relate his own discipline to the 
totality of experience; who demonstrates per- 
sonal and professional competence and growth 
through research, publication and professional 
participation; who inspires students with his re- 
spect for his profession by his ability, his charac- 
ter and his conduct; who has the ability himself 
to think creatively and objectively and to in- 
spire his students to do likewise; who extends 
himself to his students in service, to his col- 
leagues in cooperation and to his community in 
concern; and finally, whose character the stu- 
dents will want to emulate.

The number of each course conveys the following information: courses num- 
bered 100 to 299 are primarily for Freshmen and Sophomores, 300 to 499 for 
Juniors and Seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered in the first 
semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second semester. 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their faculty 
advisers. Near the close of the school year each Freshman is expected to prepare 
a tentative course program for the remaining three years of college and to 
present it to his adviser for critical evaluation and counsel. At the end of the 
second year of study each student must submit his projected program for 
approval by the Committee on Academic Review. A student may revise his 
program at any time thereafter with the approval of a major adviser. 

Opportunities for independent study are available in all disciplines. Inde- 
pendent study contracts are negotiated between the student and the faculty 
sponsor. Independent study contract forms are available in the Registrar's office. 

This catalog lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and also 
the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines within 
each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture-discussion periods 
per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or laboratories. 

Students receiving the endorsement of the professors in their major field may 
take the equivalent of two courses each semester during their Junior and Senior 
years in a program of guided independent study and research which should 
culminate in an acceptable Senior thesis. Every student must pass a compre- 
hensive examination in his major field unless he writes a Senior thesis.

The Core program is designed to provide a common educational experience 
for all students throughout their college years. The aims of the course are to 
promote a community of learners, to demonstrate the interrelatedness of know- 
ledge, and to encourage the student to think about the important questions of 
the nature of man, his relation to God, to his environment, and to his fellow- 
men. Involving faculty from all disciplines, drawdng its subject matter from 
all areas of human inquiry and creativity, and organizing its schedule to include 
a variety of presentations and readings, followed by small-group discussions, 
Core has, after ten years of evolution, remained the vital center of the college's 
academic life. 

Western Civilization 

In Freshman-Sophomore Core, the threads of Western Civilization are 
examined, both its heritage and the questions of value that perplex contem- 
porary society. Special concern is accorded to the Judaeo-Christian tradition 
as a viable option in making judgements and acting on them. The Freshman- 
Sophomore Core program provides two hour-long lectures or presentations 


each week for each entire class. Small discussion groups (averaging 15 Fresh- 
men or 19 Sophomores) meet with their faculty leader for two additional ses- 
sions weekly for an hour and a half each. The discussions examine in detail 
the documents, presentations, and topics under consideration, practicing the 
techniques of the dialectical process as students and faculty members collectively 
develop and explore ideas, and acquire sensitivity in human awareness. Since 
Florida Presbyterian College does not offer or require a Freshman composition 
course, the writing program in Core is designed to aid students in the develop- 
ment of their writing skills. 

The Core Cinema Series presents feature-length films bi-weekly for the 
entire student body, but relates primarily to the topics being considered in 
Freshman and Sophomore Core. 

101 Exploring the Nature of Western Man 

Assuming that all Western men share a common heritage which is ever with 
us, this semester also demonstrates methods of inquiry by studying an era 
(Hellenism), the contemporary developments within a world view (theism), 
a revolution in self understanding (genetic evolution), and a people who have 
been set apart ( Black America ) . 

102 Civilization 

Building on Sir Kenneth Clark's film series, a strictly chronological, historical 
examination of western civilization concentrates on works of the corresponding 
periods from the 11th to the 20th century. 

201 Perennial Problems of Society 

Dialogues on governance, human rights, and the technological revolution 
grow from assigned reading, student-selected works, and a bi-weekly newsletter 
which includes articles, reviews, and outstanding student papers. 

202 Environmental Studies 

The key to this semester is problem solving. Certainly environmental quality 
merits study, but this program actually has a broader view that includes techni- 
cal understanding, clinical examination of human behavior, community involve- 
ment, and group participation in a task force attempting to develop feasible 
solutions to local environmental problems. 

Area Studies 

The Junior year of the Core program features comparative studies of the 
works and institutions of foreign cultures, noting the exchange and interaction 
between them and our Western tradition. Utilizing four hours per week for 
lectures, presentations, workshops, and discussions, the program offers one 
semester of Asian Studies for all Juniors, followed by options in the spring 
term. These optional Area Studies courses may also be elected by Seniors. 
Special programs are arranged for students studying abroad. 


301 Asian Studies 

This course is required of all students in the fall of the Junior year. It 
provides an introduction to the traditional civilizations of China, Japan, 
and India. 

302 East Asian Studies 

This coiu-se is one of four that the student may elect in the spring term of 
his Junior year. It is a continuation of Core 301 with particular emphasis upon 
East Asia and upon the period since 1841. 

304 Latin American Studies 

This course is one of four that the student may elect in the spring term of 
his Junior year. It provides a comparative and historical study of the major 
areas of Latin America with particular attention to contemporary problems. 

306 Soviet Studies 

This course is one of four that the student may elect in the spring term of 
his Junior year. It traces the historical background and evolution of contem- 
porary Soviet institutions and introduces the student to the present realities 
of Soviet life. 

308 Black African Studies 

This course is one of four that the student may elect in the spring term of 
his Junior year. Concentrating on Sub-Saharan Africa, the course examines 
the geography, history, and cultural configurations of Black Africa. 

Christian Faith and Great Issues 

Core in the Senior year focuses upon major social, economic, and political 
issues as they affect and shape the students' own value systems. The entire 
class attends a weekly evening lecture which is open to the public, followed 
by discussion with the speaker. Small discussion groups meet at least once 

401, 402 Christian Faith and Great Issues 

Major problems in personal and social ethics receive special attention in the 
Senior year. The basis of the program is a series of presentations by noted indi- 
viduals, invited to the campus to perform, argue, demonstrate their skill, and 
otherwise address themselves to the issue under consideration. Faculty and 
students select issues from among those nominated by students. Each study 
group works wdth its faculty discussion leader in preparing its own approach 
to the issue: selecting documents, assigning oral and written presentations of 
views, and arriving at a method of evaluation. 


The Major Program 

In addition to the breadth of experience available through the Core program, 
the college provides a variety of major programs through which the student 
can attain proficiency in some particular discipline. Each student is expected 
to select a major and to demonstrate the associated proficiency before gradua- 
tion. Essential to the demonstration of proficiency in a major is the completion 
of a Senior thesis or the passing of a comprehensive examination in the major 
discipline. All students take the comprehensive examination unless invited by 
the professors of their major discipline to write a Senior thesis instead. In 
disciplines such as art, in which the emphasis is upon creation rather than re- 
search, an exhibition of completed works is the central element in the Senior 
thesis assignment. 

The Division of Humanities 

The Division offers majors in Art, Classics, Literature, Comparative Litera- 
ture, Music, Philosophy, and Religion. In addition, students may request an 
interdisciplinary major in Humanities, to be approved by the faculty adviser 
and a divisional committee. Further information concerning interdisciplinary 
programs can be obtained from the Division office.

And the Natural Sciences 

The Division offers majors in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics 
plus divisional ( interdisciphnary ) majors for pre-medical, pre-dental and medi- 
cal technology programs. Information concerning specific course requirements 
for divisional majors can be obtained from the Division office. 

Pre-Prof essional Science Programs 

Interdisciplinary programs for those students interested in careers in medi- 
cine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine have been developed in consideration 
of current trends in both undergraduate and professional education. The Pre- 
Medical Advisory Committee, which oversees the work of all students interested 
in professional careers, strongly recommends the following program: Biology 
200, 211, 298, 303; Chemistry 111, 112, 221, 222, 341, 352; Physics 101, 102; Mathe- 
matics 199, 200; Junior-Senior Colloquium in Biology and/ or Chemistry. The 
committee strongly recommends the inclusion of one or two psychology courses 
in the program. Modifications in the recommended program to meet the needs 
of individual students may be arranged through counsel with the committee. 


The Environmental Studies Major 

Multi-disciplinary programs have been developed for those students interested 
in careers in environmental management, or continuing their education at the 
graduate level in the environmental sciences. The programs have been de- 
signed to provide a broad base in areas related to the environment and its 
problems. Required base courses include Psychology 302, Economics-Political 
Science 302, Sociology 331 and either Science 111, 112 or Biology 211. Selected 
prerequisite courses, depending upon the ultimate goal of the student, include

Mathematics 103 or Psychology 202. For those interested in a more scientific 
base. Chemistry 111 and Biology 199 are prerequisites for Biology 211. 

Building upon the above multi-disciplinary base, students will elect foxir 
advanced courses in a single discipline to provide in-depth knowledge in one 
area related to environmental problems. The base, prerequisite and discipline 
courses will provide the background for involvement in a Junior-Senior level 
multi-disciplinary colloquium and a group-oriented multi-disciplinary Senior 
thesis project concerning a local environmental problem.
